    The location was excellent. Very convenient to the heart of downtown Salvador while also overlooking a breathtakingly beautiful bluff, this hotel was tops.

  • Family with children

    Localization of the Hotel; sea view;

    Hotel staff didn't pick up the phone. Breakfast room was a mess after 9:30 A.M.; booked the larger room with sea viwe but two of my windows didn't close. Ok the wind was from the sea but this isn't aceptable on a 5 star hotel.

  • Older travelers
    5.8

    I loved the view from our room and also the breakfast buffet had a good selection of various dishes and the staff working the breakfast buffet were all very pleasant.

    Housekeeping was not the best..when I walked on the floor with bare feet they picked up dirt..also one day we left the green light on to clean the room, returned some 12 hours later very tired and the room has not been cleaned. The explanation was that the cleaning staff saw the light and just thought it was red. Anyway, the room was cleaned somewhat about 10pm while we had to wait in the lobby. Please..even an apology and an offer or a drink while we had to wait!!

  • Older travelers

    The Ocean view. The availability of taxis. Good sound-proofing between rooms. The suite was ample. The cleaning staff is very nice and friendly, although inefficient. No sound of traffic as there isn't any nearby.

    The hotel looks like it was "modern" in the 70's but never maintained or brought up-to-date since. Perfect fit in Eastern Europe before the fall of the Berlin Wall. The floor in the room was always dusty, the bathroom never fully cleaned. The couch had dilapidated springs and dirty upholstery. Towels are worn-out, pillows hard. As the air-conditioning was weak, everything remained humid in the closet. To get wi-fi to work in the room, we had to insist in order to be told the whole connection procedure, and that only in Portuguese ( very few among the staff speak anything else) and you have to pay for it. The pool area is cramped and austere.The restaurant has the "charm"of a cafeteria, a limited choice at midday,only buffet at night.

  • Single
    4.2

    The hotel is located in a nice area of town, but the noise from building workers in the region is horrendous all day long.

    The swimming pool area is very small and inadequate to attend so many guests. I only had one dinner there, and I did not like the experience at all (poor food selection, lots of dishes missing from the trays (self-service), deserts were nasty even to look at at!). Internet is a joke.

  • Older travelers
    6.2

    Localization is very good. Also the friendly personnel.

    The stadard of the hotel never corrisponds to the categroy of a 5*- Hotel. This is with all respect at the maximum a 3* hotel. There is no confort at all in the rooms, the installations are old and need a fundamental restructuring.

  • Family with children
    7.4

    Great service (beach towels), good breakfast and spacious rooms. Safe neighborhood close to shops, restaurants and shops. For the beach you need to drive about 15 min by car/taxi.

  • Couple
    7.0

    The ocean sound

    The horrible air conditioner smell

  • Couple
    5.8

    We liked the location and the view from our room. It was a true ocean view.

    I think the price is reasonable but it's not a 5-star hotel. The room was confortable and clean, though not very modern. I think they should invest a bit in upgrading the furnishings in the rooms (specially the tv). I also thought the personnel at the reception were not very helpful.

  • Single
    7.4

    Took me 20 minutes to check in. And others 15 to check out. The apartaments are quite big, but they would be better with new lcd/led tv´S.
